This often marks a time to enjoy being quiet and pulling back from the stresses that permeate your world. Because this cycle involves forces that are difficult to detect, it may have an imperceptible effect upon you. To get the most out of this requires attentiveness and yet a minimum of exertion. The possibility exists for effortless movement and the capacity to get into a rhythm that sustains you while dissolving your cares. Typically it is not something that you can seek but comes to you when you are ready. Attaining a state of readiness may require that you let go of unnecessary commitments and create a space for nothing in particular and anything that arises.
Sympathy usually is more accessible to you now, and you likely show greater sensitivity to all that is around you. While you can overreact with a lack of objectivity, you generally are quick to respond to whomever is in need. Sometimes that means taking care of yourself. You benefit most, however, when you display compassion for those who are less fortunate or underserved. Not only does this impact others, but it also can open you to a wider perspective than before. Including more into your life rather than excluding tends to promote well-being and contentment.
Your imagination is usually switched on during this period, and you can envision more clearly than usual. Often you color certain areas of your life more brightly now, and you may avoid being bored. Because your mind is usually more receptive, you can appreciate what others may miss, and you often have an ear and an eye for subtlety. Music in particular and the arts in general can activate your thinking and spark a stream of ideas. Conditions also favor contemplation where emptying yourself of thoughts can allow the realization of inexpressible insights.
Circumstances can promote letting go of whatever holds you back while at the same time, you are more accepting of what you possess. In fact, you may tap into a vast reservoir of potential within yourself that you have overlooked. Options can be more plentiful often due to a belief that they exist. Faith is available to you now, and events may occur to reinforce it as well as to stretch it in order to accommodate more possibilities than before. Your attitude can shift so that you see the world differently even though it is the same. While there is much promise to this interval, it typically does not just happen. At the same time, you cannot force it but only wait for the opportunity when it arrives, often with little or no notice.
